lynndie edwards says she was told by her superiors to abuse her prisoners.

gen. taguba said yesterday that there was no evidence of direct orders to abuse iraqi prisoners at abu ghraib.

whom to believe? (and does it really matter?)

like a lot of people, i think, i've been a little too bowled over by the news from iraq to write effectively about it. there's some "i told you so" in my head, but with all the totally, legitimately horrifying news...who wants to hear it?
